I don't know if anybody is interested, but I found this Craigslist ad this morning in the Knoxville C/L postings. It's for a South Bend lathe with a dated 1906 tag on it. Don't know the person posting. Just putting it out there.

I think that may be a patent date.

Ok guys, educate yourselves as to what it is.. is it a Series O, R, N, or perhaps another all together? Here's a hint at what you look at more than anything ... the aprons face. The difference(s) will be subtle.  😉

RE: which series?

I don’t want to spoil the fun, but it looks like this one thhat is from the 1930s. Note that I still have bits to polish/fettle…

Yeah, I think I spoke too soon. Was reading the plate on the lathe & saw the date there. Didn't think about it, just posted. Another member pointed out that the date was probably a patent date.
